The Grate Typo Hunt

From NPR:

Insensed by a "no tresspassing" sign, Jeff Deck launched a cross-country trip to right gramattical wrongs.


He enlisted a freind, Benjamin D. Herson, and together they got too work erassing "errant quotation marks", rectafying mispellings and cutting unecessary possessive' apostrophe's.

The Grate Typo Hunt is the story of there crusade.

In 2 1/2 months, Herson and Deck travelled the perrimeter of the country, exploring towns and city's in search of typo's. They found 437 typo's and were able too correct more than half of them.
